Hi! I'm an American qualified teacher and I have been out of the secondary classroom for over a year (apart from the few days of supply teaching I've done here in the UK the past few weeks)... and so I'm feeling a bit intimidated about my interview for a Teacher of English position next Tuesday. In my "Invite to Interview" letter I received today, I was asked to prepare a lesson on ANYTHING to present to a top set of year 9's with approximately 15 students in the class. Well... I'm confident I can create an engaging lesson. BUT, I'm afraid I'm going to fall short of their standards because I don't do something to exact curriculum, exam boards, or whatever UK-specific standards. Does this mean I need to study up on the KS3 curriculum? Which I have, and it's familiar to me. But what tips or tricks can someone in this forum give me that will help me wow them? Or make them know I have gone the extra mile in making sure the lesson was UK appropriate? What's expected of me? Also, in the US we don't use the term "plenary".... what is a plenary? Thanks in advance... I hope someone can help!
